China agrees to return captured Navy drone to U.S.

Washington and Beijing have agreed to terms to return a Navy drone captured in the disputed waters of the South China Sea to the U.S., the Pentagon announced Saturday.

The Chinese navy’s seizure of the underwater drone — known as an “ocean glider” — in international waters 50 nautical miles northwest of Subic Bay off the Philippine coast was the latest diplomatic row in America’s increasingly tense relationship with China.

“We have registered our objection to China’s unlawful seizure of a U.S. unmanned underwater vehicle operating in international waters in the South China Sea,” Pentagon Press Secretary Peter Cook said in a statement.

“Through direct engagement with Chinese authorities, we have secured an understanding that the Chinese will return the UUV to the United States,” he added.

The drone was “collecting unclassified information” on oceanographic details and was not part of any intelligence gathering operation in the South China Sea, according to the Pentagon.

    China may have realized that in little over a month they will be dealing with a new president who has a spine and is unwilling to be the playground coward.

      The One World Order showed it’s ugly head through O’s fecklessness and his tying him to the breasts of our enemies and every vector and wicked leader in this world took advantage.

      It is far from over they fully intend to have a complete outside investigation into Trump’s campaign and this with RINO like Graham and McCain and others agreeing and saying if they find Putin preferred one candidate over the other and if they find any evidence of Trump’s campaign tied to Russia for leaks etc they will go from there.

      Well we all know without using a prophet from God where this is going. We see the writing on the wall and we also understand that indeed the One World Order and Shadow Government is still in the Drivers seat and the passengers are indeed our own Congress and all our representatives. Otherwise there would be outrage by the Republicans and a resounding voice hollering out in the wilderness; “No Russian made Hillary acid wash her emails, destroy computers and cell phones, no Russian made her have Classified and Top Secret on her server, no Russian made her lie about Benghazi to the people and email her daughter the truth and no Russian made Comey write Congress saying new facts came out, which they did and the investigation into her was on going.” WHAT THE HELL ABOUT THIS DOES NOBODY UNDERSTAND AND DO THEY HONESTLY BELIEVE WE THINK OTHERWISE? FAKE NEWS CAN’T UNDO HILLARY OR PUT HER WHOLE AGAIN. PERIOD.

      I am sick and tired of watching my country assaulted and people framed and killed and I surely am sick and tired of this Trump Madness the cows in the terd herd have caught. God help America because we have nobody on our side. The DOJ, AG, is still crooked as the Wicked Witch in Oz’s nose and the filthy American hating Msulim is still in the WH. BLOODY HELL IS WHAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN BLOODY HELL IF THEY SCREW US OUT OF OUR CHOICE.

    This is the kind of trouble you have when you have a candy a$$ as President for 8 years, that’s run all around the world apologizing for nothing and french kissing every a$$ he could, and probably more!

    1. snowyriver says:

      Rodney: Obama is not our president.. He did not and never can meet the Constitutional requirements to be president.. Our Constitution is the supreme law of this land.. At least that is what it states clearly in writing.

      1. Rodney Steward says:

        I agree, he’s never been my President!
